#315 – Dex Romweber of Flat Duo Jets – Wild Wild Love

Wild rock n’ roll personified

In 1984, right when the world was embracing the synthesizers and funny haircuts of New Wave, the Flat Duo Jets emerged from Chapel Hill, bringing everything back to basics – Dexter Romweber on vocals and guitar, and Chris “Crow” Smith on drums.

Daniel 13 is issuing Wild Wild Love, a two-disc set that brings together the band’s first full length, 1990’s Flat Duo Jets, along with 1984’s cassette-only In Stereo EP and a second disc of bonus material.

We talk with Romweber about the band’s origins, what led to the reissue of these recordings, and the band’s appearances on both MTV and Late Night with David Letterman.
